Hektoen Institute has a long history of partnership with governmental organizations to deliver public health grant programs. Hektoen was founded in 1943 by Cook County Health & Hospitals System (CCHHS) physicians as a vehicle to operate externally funded research. Since that time, Hektoen has evolved to serve as a health care fiscal administrator for a wide variety of programs for CCHHS and other city and state-level entities.

Hektoen has created an efficient and flexible administrative operations system that enables us to manage budgeting, invoicing, payments, payroll, human resources, pre- and post-award grant administration, and fiscal compliance for grant-funded programs. We leverage our infrastructure, expertise, and cash flow to deliver programs when other organizations encounter administrative challenges. If you are in need of a trusted partner to manage any part of the grant process, please call us today to discuss how we can help.
